Different Types Of Rapid Prototyping
Rapid prototyping is a family of additive production processes used to assemble prototype models. These processes are known as additive methods, as material is added to the model during construction rather than cut away from a solid block. Members of this family in general use include selective laser sintering (SLS), stereolithography (SLA), and three-dimensional (3D) printing (3DP). Laminated object manufacturing (LOM), fused deposition modeling (FDM), and electron beam melting (EBM) are also among the more common rapid prototyping processes.
